I went "Red Neck" once and had plenty of Tee's with the flag of the "Army of Northern Virginia", Lee's army (commonly called the "Rebel Flag"). However there were 26 or 27 different armies in the CSA and each had their own colors.

Here's one from (I'm guessing) around 1980. You can't really see us, but you can see what we got up to.

That piece we're plowing was mainly for potatoes, onions, and beans. Out of shot were plum and apple trees, blackberries and raspberries, and gooseberry bushes.

Behind my dad (working the plow) is fenced off pasture for the two or three cows we had. That also doubled as the sawmill lot. Around 1980 was probably just the second year for that, and it would eventually result in less animal-raising (that, along with kids growing up and moving out). I think we butchered our last cow in 1980, and our last pigs in probably 1984.

That tractor is a 1950's-something Ferguson that my dad bought in about 1967, while we still lived in town. My brother still uses it to this day.
